Sameer was an excellent tour guide. We visited Palm Island. Very flexible and knowledgeable. I highly recommend.
Just Book It!

A great way to spend your layover! Asim was fantastic! He communicated well, showed us some great places (both unknown and known to us), and we very knowledgeable! Customs in Dubai is SUPER easy for Americans. If you have a layover, do it!

We had a 9hr layover in Dubai and really wanted to venture out and do something other than sit in the airport. This was perfect! Sameer was awesome! He picked us up from the airport and took us around to all the largest, tallest buildings of the world, took us to the gold and spice souks (market) and gave us some history on Dubai as well. AND took some great photos of us! We got a little lost finding him in the airport which took up some time in that we didn't get to do the water taxis so I would advise to solidify a pick up area beforehand in case you run into wifi issues or what have you. But all in all 10/10, would recommend and we even had time for local cuisine at the end! We were back at the airport 3hrs before our flight, plenty of time. Thank you Sameer!
Best guide you can get

Waseem was the best. He fit us in right on time and we got to see quite a bit of the city. He knows it all. Highly recommend.
Dubai never sleeps, as...

Dubai never sleeps, as Waseem proved on my wee hours of the morning layover tour. From a souk shop open late (bad for my budget, good for my senses) to where Dubai originated, and on to modern day Dubai with all its opulence, this was a fun, educational and impressive tour. Glad I escaped the airport for a few hours to do this!
Great Use of a Layover in Dubai!

I was in Dubai for a 9 hour layover with my granddaughter and her two cousins. Our tour guide, Asim was amazing! He was patient, pleasant and had a great sense of humor but more importantly, he was knowledgeable about the rich history and culture of Dubai.

He took us to the Grand Souk where we got to experience bargaining, we learned about all the amazing herbs, spices and teas. My granddaughter and one of her cousins are chefs in the making so that was a highlight for them! We tasted this amazing tea with saffron in it and learned how to tell when you have the real thing! We left there with all kinds of herbs and teas!

We learned about the different garments that are worn and got to try on things but what was really nice was refreshing was that there wasn’t pressure to buy (although we did!).

We saw some of the major landmarks like the Burj Khalifa, the Dubai Mall, and Burj Al Arab. Asim made me want to come back for a longer stay to check out more of the food and culture of Dubai. I can’t wait to come back with more family and will definitely recommend this tour and Asim!
Excellent 4 hours with Sameer

Sameer is a superb tour guide in addition to being a safe driver. He has excellent knowledge of Dubai and was able to express it very well. Our time with the tour was only 4 hours and he made the most of it. He also helped us get some scrumptious vegetarian breakfast from a local restaurant. Sameer is also a great photographer and took many pictures of us that we’ll cherish for a long time
Great private tour!

Sameer really maximized our few hours in Dubai. Very informative and worthwhile to get a quick overview of the city!
Very good little tour

We had 8 hour layover in Dubai. So we booked this 4 hour tour. The vehicle was in good condition and AC was running which is important because we went in summer. Guide took us to Marina, palm Jumeirah, burj al Arab, burj Khalifa, Dubai mall.
He gave us the history of each attraction.
Our night in Dubai

Sharing a meal at a local restaurant
that cooked camel ( tastes like beef just
leaner). My Auntie adopting another son.
Highly recommended for a 10 hour layover!

I had a 10 hour layover (from noon to 10pm), so I decided to book a last minute solo tour of Dubai. This is my first time visiting the city. My flight was delayed about 1 hour, so I made sure to give
about 2 hours from the estimated arrival time to the tour starting (plane was supposed to land at noon and I booked a 2pm tour). Give some time for immigration (about 10-20 minute wait). The tour was about 4-5 hours and was modifiable based on my personal needs or timing. It was not difficult to find my tour guide and/or communicate with him. Asim was knowledgeable and did his best to show me every unique and memorable aspect of Dubai including its history and modernity. He made sure to make the most of every minute spent in the city. I did not feel rushed and had a great background of each site. I even had time for a nice dinner with a great view of The Frame. I would definitely come visit again with him as my tour guide. I felt safe and would recommend this tour to solo or group travelers.
